Every day at EXPLO is intentionally designed so that learning doesn’t end when classes do. Each activity, every encounter is an open-ended opportunity for discovery and growth.
Our year-round staff works for 10 months every off-season to develop curriculum and programming that will knock your socks off. (Unless you’re in the science lab, where closed-toe shoes are required.)
From the moment your feet hit the floor in the morning until your head hits the pillow at lights out, every day at EXPLO is jam-packed with courses, entertainment, trips, and fun!
Walk the halls that housed past Presidents. View a Van Gogh on your way to class. Experience what it’s like being a student on one of the preeminent university campuses in the world. When you come to EXPLO, you come to Yale.
From the halls of MIT to the minds of curious young people from across the U.S. and around the world, learning through exploration combines an array of experiences — from hands-on courses and workshops to outdoor activities and weekend trips — that transform the way students engage with the world. More than 40 years later, EXPLO continues to reinvent the learning experience. Educators, nonprofits, and corporate leaders alike now seek EXPLO’s knowledge and expertise in engaged learning, critical making, and design thinking to drive their organizations forward.
